Chicago, Illinois (August 12, 2022): The Foundation for Sickle Cell Disease
Research (FSCDR) recognized Hilton Publishing Company in the June 2022 publication of the Journal of Sickle Cell Disease and Hemoglobinopathies (JSCDH), the only sickle cell disease journal in the world. For two decades, Hilton Publishing Company has contributed to further innovation, research and education in sickle cell disease. Working together with its expert authors and research partners, Hilton Publishing has published an entire series of patient education books on SCD, the development of a brand-new mobile app for kids called Pinpoint, and the creation of lasting partnerships with healthcare providers to assist in the delivery of education and support to sickle cell patients.
Hilton Publishing Company (known today as HPC International, Inc.) was created by a doctor who saw the overlooked need for culturally sensitive and age-appropriate education for minority patient populations and their unique individual medical challenges. It was then that HPC became a vehicle to deliver much needed patient education to these diverse communities.
For twenty-five years, HPC has worked to build a network of physician authors and other medical experts who treat patients in underserved communities where the prevalence of sickle cell is highest. Through partnerships with private, public and nonprofit agencies and medical providers, HPC continues to arm both health professionals and the families they support with evidence-based information on sickle cell so they can build a stronger, healthier local community and embrace the diversity among them.
HPC looks forward to launching its latest innovation for sickle cell disease patients called Pinpoint, a sickle cell app for teens that was created by HPC in a partnership with Klein Buendel through a National Institutes of Health research grant. Using gaming technology, Pinpoint provides a safe, convenient tool for teens to learn about, track, assess, and communicate about their sickle cell pain with medical providers and parents.
